Passing Criteria

The two criteria for passing the exam are: One must have scored more than the passing score for the exam, and one must have scored over 25% on each section of the exam. If those requirements are met, then the examinee will be deemed to have passed the test. (Note: The passing score differs for each exam.)
Even if one has a total score which is above the passing score for the exam, but scored less than 25% on one or more of the individual sections, the examinee will receive a failing score for the overall exam. This rule is intended to ensure an unbiased evaluation of each examinee’s Japanese language abilities.
